Civil rights attorney Nia Brown joined the team this month as the Manager of Education and Advocacy. In this role, she develops and supports Georgia Watch’s consumer education and advocacy work in the Health Access, Consumer Energy, Financial Protection and Access to Civil Justice Programs.
A graduate of Emory University School of Law and Spelman College, Nia has a background in social justice, with a focus on civil rights. Prior to joining Georgia Watch, she served as the Policy and Advocacy Manager for YWCA Evanston-North Shore near Chicago where she led organizational advocacy focused on gender and racial equity.
Nia was drawn to Georgia Watch because of the organization’s long history leading the fight for consumer rights, civil justice and financial protections for all Georgians. She is excited to use her talents to advocate for equity in the areas of housing, healthcare and energy.
